Dear Mr. Jennings:

I'm a carpenter specializing in making and installing custom cabinets for offices, kitchens, and bathrooms. I am skilled and trained with ten years of experience with Marvel Construction Company where I worked with a crew of carpenters and eventually moved to supervisor.

I saw the posting on JobBankUSA.com for employment as a carpenter with J and B and it seemed the ideal position for me at this time of my life. I have a portfolio of pictures displaying my craftsmanship and I'd like very much to introduce myself to you in person and show you my work. In fact, that's the purpose of this cover letter.

I'm available to meet you any afternoon after 3:00 p.m. Please call 888-888-8888 to arrange a date that works for you. I hope to be a part of your carpentry team in the days ahead.
